A Plant List for Wet and Deep Shade areas

As we are in full Spring swing there is a lot of call ins on wet and moist problematic areas. We are outside all the time and were definitely caught in some ugly weather conditions! Although we install irrigation and draining systems trees, shrubs and plants are very helpful too! We thought this would be great to share a plants list that will help in wet and deep shaded problem areas for the Pacific Gardener and homeowner! The Vancouver, Tri-cities area and the Lower Mainland in the Fraser Valley are all parts of BC where the rain just keeps coming so this plant list is sure to help!

  • Variegated Laurel
  • Holly (Ilex latifolia)
  • Rhododendron Hybrids
  • Skimmia Joponica
  • English Yew (Taxus baccata)

Next post we will cover a list of Wet areas with Full Sun! If you know of any others that like this wet and dark condition let us know and we will be sure to add it to the list! When designing a landscape many factors must all be seriously understood and well planned.
